If Larry Johnson throws up “the roc” every time he scores a touchdown, he might want to throw one up for all the Kansas City Chiefs fans he’s scoring points with. In light of Johnson’s amazingly-brilliant Twitter rant and subsequent suspension, Chiefs fans have had enough of Number 27 and because of that, they don’t want him to get any closer to the franchise’s all-time leading rusher record, one that’s currently held by fan-favorite, Priest Holmes.
In fact, Chiefs fans are so against the idea of Johnson owning that record, they’ve brought out the big guns to express themselves:
An Internet petition.
Now before you scoff, some petitions have been used to save television shows, so who knows, maybe the Chiefs fans can get their point across in such a manner. If not, I’d recommend a torch-carrying mob descend on 1 Arrowhead Dr and rabble-rouse to their heart’s content. Hey, they do have a right to assemble for peaceful demonstrations, so why not take advantage of it? I mean, just as long as you are only using those torches to light your way.
Anyway, back to the petition. Chiefs fans want nothing to do with Johnson having records they cherish, and hey, when you consider Johnson’s impressive 2.7 YPC on top of everything else he’s managed to screw up, you begin to see their point. A snippet of their plea reveals more:

Welcome back, son. It’s good to see you running like that. Forgive me if I wonder if you can keep it up, however. Nature of the game and all that.
Anyway, the reason I’m writing is to say it’s time to retire “the Roc,” OK? Now that Ramel Bradley has moved on from college basketball, you are the only prominent athlete to push that diamond up and now, it’s time to stop.
I know, I know. You are represented by the Team Roc clothing line, which essentially means the Iconix Brand has a hold of you as well. I don’t see you throwing up Iconix, but then again, this isn’t the easiest thing to do with your hands. Nevertheless, it’s time to move on and retire
the Diamond Dallas Page Diamond Cutter the Roc.
Don’t get me wrong, loyalty to those who give you money isn’t a bad thing, but throwing the diamond up is kinda like the high-top fade — the fad has run its course. Maybe in ten or so years, you can do a Brandon Jennings and bring it back, but until then, please find another way of letting the world know you scored again.
Or perhaps you could, I don’t know, throw some kind of arrowhead hand sign into your repertoire — seeing how the Chiefs actually pay you more money than the clothing line you pimp. Just a thought.
